Are we still going to keep acting like Nigeria is not under a war?
Some days ago, it was Greenfield University, Kaduna University, Benue University and now another school in Igbariam, Anambra state.

So sad with what I am reading and the videos that I am seeing here of alleged Fulani men killing villagers in Igbariam. I served in Igbariam and it was a peaceful place. My colleagues and I moved around town as late as 12 midnight. Everywhere is boiling in Nigeria. God save us al

Something not just right with this Igbariam killing. People using the same video accusing Fulani Herdsman of the killing. While they use same video saying is Fulani Herdsman family that was killed.

There’s a video of dead bodies on the streets of Igbariam Anambra State.@PoliceNG , while you delay to investigate this incident and release the details of the attack, propagandists are twisting the story to favor their narrative and cause more tension.
